In the late 60’s Led Zeppelin gave us “Whole Lotta Love”. Then the 70’s hit and The Clash rang saying “London Calling”, and we answered. In the 80’s Guns ‘N’ Roses took us all to “Paradise City”. The 90’s came and so did Nirvana, saying it “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. Now it’s 2008 and along come Cirkus telling us Let the Madness Begin…and it has, look around folks!
Cirkus, slaps you in the face with Roux’d (vocals), Snetan (guitar), Maston (bass) and Ric (drums), the sound, the edge, and the image of hey-day rockers such as Mötley Crüe and Aerosmith. Their riffs are fast and hard with lyrics that unapologetically attack big city lights, fast women, and the media. Receiving rave reviews and critical acclaim from Europe to Southern California, Cirkus’s live performances win over even the biggest skeptics.
After releasing 3 successful EP’s for three years straight, Cirkus has just finished their full on frontal assault debut album titled “Let the Madness Begin” together with musical genius Chris Tsangarides, a Grammy nominated producer and mixing engineer for bands such as Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath, Bruce Dickinson and Yngwie Malmsteen. Let the Madness Begin is set for a US release on November 11th through Nightmare Records/Koch Distribution. It’s called a shock to the system and senses so what better way to describe a Cirkus attack than Let the Madness Begin. The songs, the sound and the quality of the album speak for itself.

HANOI ROCKS WILL BREAK UP BY THE END OF THE YEAR 2008
Hanoi Rocks have decided to break up by the end of the year 2008.
Michael Monroe and Andy McCoy feel that they’ve taken the band as far as it can go and now wish to go their separate ways. All commitments until the end of the year, including the UK tour starting in London on Halloween, will naturally be honoured.
In addition, the band has decided to say farewell to their fans by doing a final tour of Japan in the spring 2009 and immediately thereafter wrapping things up with a few nights at the legendary Tavastia Club in Helsinki, Finland where their career originally got started in the 80’s.
November 26th will see the timely release of the first ever career-spanning Hanoi Rocks retrospective: a 2-CD set titled “This One’s Rock’n’Roll – The Best Of Hanoi Rocks 1980-2008″.
The band wishes to thank all their fans, co-workers and business partners for their continued love and support throughout the years.
I enjoyed “Sinner” quite a bit, so I was anxious to hear what the Aussie King of the Badasses had in store for us, with his new disc “Judgement Day”.
Dave brought in his writing mate Mark Tinson to craft nine new tunes to get you rocking.
If you are familiar with the sound of Australian pub rock, then you will know what to expect with this CD. You get a bunch of hard rocking tunes with loud guitars that will get your blood pumping.
55 year old Dave Evans can still get in done in 2008. His vocals combined with the bluesy guitar licks of Ngariki makes this a fun disc to listen to. Guitarist Ngariki is a very good player, and his bluesy fretwork greatly augments the songs on “Judgement Day”.
Just listen to his playing on my favorite cuts “We Don’t Dance To Your Song”, “Little Headbanger” and “You Talkin’ To Me?”. He really kicks ass. I would love to see him handle these tunes in a live setting.
Bob Dylan, The Animals, Geordie, and countless other bands have covered “House of the Rising Sun”. Dave Evans doesn’t really add any new twists to the song, but I like his version.
I don’t think the songs on “Judgement Day” are quite as strong as Dave Evans last disc “Sinner”, but I still thought the CD was pretty good nonetheless. It is another solid effort from Dave Evans and company.
The two song clips below will give you a brief taste of “Judgement Day”. Check them out, and if you like what you hear, You can purchase your copy of “Judgement Day” at Chaos.com, CDWow or through iTunes!

SAW V, THE LATEST INSTALLMENT OF THE HORROR MOVIE FRANCHISE, HITS THEATERS OCTOBER 24
“Hello…I want to play a game,” those are the immortal words Saw’s sadistic purveyor of self-imposed twisted justice Jigsaw utters to his victims as they come to. And if you hear those words you’re soon to find yourself in a world of hurt. Back for the fifth installment of the Saw horror series this Halloween (in theaters October 24 to be exact), moviegoers will once again cringe in their seats as blood, guts and body parts are up for grabs.
And because every sick & twisted horror honcho needs an explosive soundtrack, Artists’ Addiction Soundtracks has compiled a list of incendiary artists such as Ministry, Skinny Puppy, Testament, and Revolting Cocks among the 14 tracks for the volatile digital-only release.
What started out as a “little” indie horror movie back in 2004 has turned into a juggernaut go-for-the-throat franchise so gruesome you want to turn away, yet so compelling you just can’t. And fittingly enough, the movie soundtracks have always been amicable counterparts assaulting the senses in a fashion that would make Jigsaw proud.
Adding to the sonic assault to Saw V is Charlie Clouser (ex-Nine Inch Nails), no stranger to the Saw soundtracks, with his cuts “Trap Attacks” and “What It Takes,” as well as Filter’s remix version of “What’s Next.” Other killer songs include: Testament’s “True Believer,” Ministry’s “Death and Destruction (Remix),” Prong’s “The Banishment,” Die Krupps’ “The Dawning of Doom,” Skinny Puppy’s “ugLi” and The Revolting Cocks’ “Wizard of Sextown.”
Artists’ Addiction Soundtracks’ Jonathan Platt says of the Saw V Soundtrack: “We feel that we have put together a collection of songs that really mirrors the chaos onscreen. All of our acts are big fans of the Saw series and were excited to be a part of the soundtrack and I think that energy really comes across.”
This Halloween belongs to Saw V!!
